Waterloo is set to become even more vibrant and diverse through a NSW Government urban renewal program that will deliver new homes, shops, major transport services, community facilities, parks, and open spaces over the next 20 years.
The 20-hectare precinct under investigation is located just over 3km south of Sydney CBD and includes a large area of government-owned land, including the Waterloo Metro Quarter and the Waterloo Estate. The Minister for Planning has determined the area is of State planning significance and is now being investigated for rezoning through the State Significant Precinct process.
The planning controls for the Waterloo Metro Quarter have been updated to support development over the future Metro Station.
Waterloo Estate has been identified as one of the locations under the NSW Government’s $22 billion Communities Plus program to deliver new social and affordable housing alongside private housing.
